The waters asswage
8:1 And ELOHEEM remembered Noah and every living thing, and all the cattle that was
with him in the ark: and ELOHEEM made a wind to pass over the
earth, and the waters subsided;
8:2 The fountains of the deep and the windows of the heavens
were stopped, and the rain from the heavens were restrained;
8:3 And the waters returned from off the earth continually (in going
and returning): and after the end of the hundred and fifty days
The ark rest
8:4 And the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seventeenth day
of the mont, upon the mountains of Ararat.
8:5 And the waters decreased continually until the tenth month: in
the tenth month, on the first day of the month, were the tops of
the mountains seen.
8:6 And it came to pass at the end of forty days, that Noah opened
the window of the ark which he had made:
8:7 And he sent forth a raven, and it went out going and returning
until the waters were dried up off the earth.
8:8 Also he sent forth a dove from him, to see if the waters were
abated from off the face of the ground;
8:9 But the dove found on rest for the sole of her foot, and she
returned unto him into the ark, for the waters were on the face
of the whole earth: then he put forth his hand, and took her, and
pulled her in unto the ark.
8:10 And he stayed yet another seven days; and again he sent
forth the dove out of the ark;
8:11 And the dove came in to him in the evening; and,
behold, in her mouth was an olive leaf plucked off: so Noah knew
that the waters were abated off the earth.
8:12 And he stayed yet another seven days; and sent forth
the dove; which returned not again unto him any more.
8:13 And it came to pass in the six hundredth and first
year, in the first month, the first day of the month, the waters
were dried up from off the earth: and Noah removed the covering
of the ark, and looked, and behold, the face of the ground was
8:14 And in the second month, on the seven and twentieth day
of the month, was the earth dried.
8:15 And ELOHEEM spoke unto Noah, saying,
8:16 Go out of the ark, you and your wife, and your sons,
and your sons' wives with you.
8:17 Bring forth with you every living thing, of all flesh,
both of fowl, and of cattle,and of every creeping thing that
creeps upon the earth; that they may breed abundantly in the
earth, and be fruitful, and multiply upon the earth.
Noah goes forth
8:18 And Noah went forth, and his sons, and his wife, and
his sons' wives with him:
8:19 Every beast, every creeping thing, and every fowl, and
what ever creeps upon the earth, after their families, went
forth out of the ark.
8:20 And Noah built an altar unto Yehovah; and took of every
clean beast, and every clean fowl. And offered burnt offerings on
God promises to curse the earth no more
8:21 And Yehovah smelled the soothing fragrance; and Yehovah
said in his heart, I will not curse the ground anymore because of
man; for the though of man's heart is evil from his youth;
neither will I again strike any more every thing living, as I have
8:22 As yet all the days of the earth remain, seedtime and
harvest, and cold and heat, and summer and winter, and day and
night shall not cease.
